Putin will not leave Crimea – Kommersant

Russia does not intend to leave Crimea, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. He said that he discussed this with Russian President Vladimir Putin back in 2014.

“Back in 2014, I had certain discussions and negotiations with President Putin regarding Crimea. And our discussions were not crowned with success. And I couldn’t force them to leave Crimea. And I think that at present this is also impossible,” Mr. Erdogan said in an interview with the TV channel PBS.

The Turkish president has repeatedly offered to act as a mediator for Russian-Ukrainian negotiations. Recep Tayyip Erdogan claims that not only he, but also Vladimir Putin would like a speedy end to hostilities. He said that he trusted Mr. Putin as much as he trusted the leaders of Western countries.
